That was very nice. I especially liked your harmonies in the chorus part of the "normal" (non-minor) version.

Just a thought, but have you considered combining the two? For example playing the major version, but throwing in a minor verse before reverting back to the major chorus (or something similar). I could see this working well as a way of including the minor modulation.

Thanks. I only think I should change strings very soon.

I must say I was rather pleased with those too.

I didn't really consider that, but it would be easy; just play one after the other. Drawback: It would loose the new title, which I rather enjoyed.

I thought your minor key version was interesting too. Very creative! :)

Bravo! Very well done! I ran across this threat a little late, but still within the holiday season!

No problem. The world is still white enough for a one horse open sleigh.

Very nice! The minor is entertaining--also instructive, in that it shows that not everything in major corresponds to something exactly parallel in minor and vice versa.

PS: The world's whiteness is always enhanced by a one-horse soap and sleigh passing over it!

Hi Rodney,
Thanks. It indeed isn't possible to just change the key, but it's fun to see what has to be done to get a reasonable piece again.
